Fishing Hooks Mustad

A wonderful way and time to introduce youngsters to fishing is in the spring with the arrival of good old Blue fishing! Some of my fondest early memories are of Snapper fishing, Oh what wonderful fun my childhood close friends and I had! We would seine (bother) with long nets in the shallows of the bay for shiners, toss them in a bucket of saltwater and presto we had live bait for the day. The intense battling Blue fish pound for pound are some the hardest fought species you will experience; as when in a boil and up in a latter they will bite on near anything cast into the water. My personal favorite is a hammered metal spoon such as a Hopkins lure of 1 to 3 Oz's. with a single hook. This heavy-duty lure cast extremely nicely and holds up to the Piranha like bite of blue fishing. However Bucktails with cut squid, Got-cha Plug, Clark spoons and Spec rigs work nicely also. The sharp teeth of the Blue fish will tear the soft-bodied lures to shreds. Many individuals turn their nose as much as having Blue fish for a meal, not me as I choose the small Blue fish as they produce a fine dinner!

The old adage that Blue fish appear one week either side of Mothers Day is called;"the Blues blitz the beach". This adage is still true today and if they don't "blitz" they will certainly be about. We have wonderful success finding Blue fish in the Indian River Inlet and at wonderful near shore locations such as Fenwick Shoals. If you observe diving birds (terns) during this time of year then the chances are you will have found surface feeding Blues. Simply cast away and have at them for some none stop fishing action!

In the evening under the lights of the Indian River Inlet Coast Guard station, anglers cast lures attaching stripers. Stripers like soft bodies affixed to a lead head. Soft bodies such as swimming shad lures including Tsunami and Storm Wild-eye are brands of swimming shad and work well. Other lures such as Fin-s-Fish, and plugs made by Rebel and Rapala have wonderful success as the stripers are commonly living on the surface in the evening. Numerous skilled anglers will bide their time waiting for slack tide. Nothing works better at this time than live bait. Spot is a wonderful live bait. Affixed to some fluorocarbon and a fish finder rig it will usually establish a bite when nothing else will. Finding a piling, bridge abutment or pier to drift by at slack tide will create remarkable success for catching good size stripers when none have been caught all day!
